Movie Info

Trashed - No Place For Waste with the participation of Jeremy Irons, looks at the risks to the food chain and the environment through pollution of our air, land and sea by waste. The film reveals surprising truths about very immediate and potent dangers to our health. It is a global conversation from Iceland to Indonesia between the film star Jeremy Irons and scientists, politicians and ordinary i ndividuals whose health and livelihoods have been fundamentally affected by waste pollution. Visually and emotionally the film is both horrific and beautiful: an interplay of human interest and political wake-up call. But it ends on a message of hope: showing how the risks to our survival can easily be averted through sustainable approaches that provide far more employment than the current 'waste industry'.(c) Official Site

The movie, as have other eco-documentaries, chillingly examines how endless bits of the toxic material routinely flood our oceans, harm its inhabitants and find their way into the fish we eat.

If we must talk trash, Mr. Irons - assisted by a scientist or two and Vangelis's doomy score - is an inspired choice of guide.

Crucial viewing for realists and alarmists both.

The form is straightforward, if a little meandering, as is the message: We have to fix this.

While its techniques are manipulative -- it's certainly no margin-call to say that Vangelis's two-dimensional score barely lets up from start to finish -- the picture ultimately swerves pitfalls of hectoring preachiness.

Earnest but rather televisual.

Audience Reviews for Trashed

1/19/15 Vudu Disturbing, educational, scary, well researched and a wake up call. Big Jeremy Irons fan and he did a great job along with a whole host of knowledgeable people who painted a somewhat dire picture but did have some bits of encouragement. Film really makes you think about how you can improve the trash situation with some thoughtful shopping and living. This is why I love documentaries.

Hard to watch the devastation, but we must change our habits on earth. Zero Waste is the way forward.
